Brazil is a land which, according to a popular saying: “was blessed by God and is naturally beautiful”
Brazil is the fourth largest national territory in the world. In fact, its land expanse is greater than Europe and larger than the continent of the United States (excluding Alaska and Hawaii).
A visit to Brazil means the unexpected discovery of a place of warm tropical sun and 5000 miles of white-sand beaches, of coconut groves and mango trees, of music and dance, of baroque colonial towns and villages, plus impressive cities of 21st century opulence and sophistication.

Brazil’s present population is approximately 192 million inhabitants, which makes Brazil the 6th most populous country in the world. The demographic density comes to just over 19,2 people per square kilometer, but the distribution is highly irregular, with the majority of the population concentrated in a comparatively narrow lowland strip along the coast, and 81% lives in urban areas.
* Portuguese is the official language of the country.
* In the bigger cities with a good infrastructure for tourism, English and Spanish is spoken in hotels, travel agencies and airports.
* In the southern part of the country many Brazilians speak German or Italian, as a consequence of the colonialization..
Officially, Brazil is a Catholic country and claims the largest Catholic population of any country in the world. However, Brazil is also noted for the diversity and syncretism of its many sects and religions, which offer great flexibility to their followers. For example, without much difficulty you can find people with Catholic backgrounds who frequent the church and have no conflict appealing for help at a “terreio de umbanda”, the house of one of the Afro-Brazilian cults. Candomblé is the most orthodox of the cults brought from Africa.
